I joined here a few years ago but I am not very active. I found the site while looking for info and a price on some original Juliets I was selling. Found a lot of good info and helpful people. And a buyer for the glasses too!

Ok - so I have been an Oakley customer now for over 30yrs - pretty much exclusively in terms of eyewear. (although last year my work bought me a pair of Nike 'computer' glasses and I have to admit they are pretty dang comfortable for all day wear)

Anyway - I am not a huge collector or very knowledgeable about all the technical aspects and finite details of Oakley eyewear and all the versions etc. I dont know a lot the terms that are used on here. (like what the heck are donor lenses???) I have a renewed interest lately and over the last 3 weeks or so I have bought 7 pairs of glasses and a display case. So I have been on here a lot more lately looking for sales and info etc. And I will probably be asking more questions and looking for more info in the coming days.

I usually buy only from trusted retailers or sellers, but once in a while, I will take a calculated risk/gamble on FeeBay. (and the 29.99 Crankshafts from China didnt work out so well, although I did have to tip my hat at the level of effort they put into creating the fake packaging)

Ok, I started babbling so much (habit of mine) that I forgot I came here with a question: What does "serialized" eyewear mean?? I feel stupid asking since I'm guessing it just means there is an s/n? But I bought a pair of SJ2 direct from Oakley a few years ago and it says that on the box. But I cant find an s/n on them anywhere?

Do all Oakley glasses have a serial number or only the 'higher end' glasses? That cant be? That just seems unrealistic...

I’ll be honest... I didn’t. I just read the last part which is why I responded.:D

To fully answer your question, some special edition/limited edition have serial numbers. X metals back in the day we’re all sterilized except for a few generations and any that were refinished/came from warranty.

I usually check o-review.com for any color/lens questions. It’s a good reference if you don’t want to wait for a response.

Haha, fair enough JM! I probably should have broken it up in different posts!

Thanks again for the info. So there is more info on 'donor' lenses there?
